Addressing Adversity

Our nationwide project promotes trauma informed practice that helps professionals to support children and young people who have experienced distressing or disturbing times.

Project aim

To raise awareness of the impact of childhood trauma and adversity of young people's mental health.

Through Addressing Adversity we aim to build skills and capacity within the children's services workforce and help professionals to support the most vulnerable young people. 

By engaging various workforces across the country we are working towards practical changes within local systems to promote a more trauma informed approach.

Who's it for

The project is aimed at professionals working within the children's workforce and children's services commissioners.
